I'or those unfortunate people in .other lands -who have hut little to wear and l>y whom a Lrit'l of wearing apparel will be greatly appreciated and may save them from I'reeziny to death next winter. A drive for such clothing is now being conducted by the Catholic diocese uf .Hartford. Ami, speaking of- drives, wo mustn't forget that a new AVnr Fund campaign will be held I'rniii October S to November J.I, when, it is expected, a total sum of $2fj,:>8() will bo invested in U'nr .Bonds in this borough.

Around the Clock Maybe we ought tc tell you that since September 17, grocers were prohibited from making change with blue ration tokens. Consumers are still allowed to use the blue discs for purchases only in sets of ten. And after 'October 1, blue tokens will cease being valid ration currency.

The whole trouble was the failure of highly imaginative citizens lo realix.e that the mysterious fumes in question were merely unpleasant, chemical i gases emanating from a couple of local war factories. .'It may be a good thing, however, that this scare occurred.
